[Source: Jahna Berry, Arizona Republic] — This summer, downtown Phoenix will have a slew of offerings for kids. The Arizona Science Center recently added a $1.5 million weather-themed exhibit that has amusement park-style features. And in June, the center will host Chronicles of Narnia, a traveling exhibition with props and costumes from the movie based on the C.S. Lewis books.
The long-awaited Children’s Museum of Phoenix will open June 14. Geared toward children 10 and younger, the 70,000-square-foot museum’s opening day exhibits will include an art studio, a miniature market, and a “carwash” for tricycles. “Downtown Phoenix is more of a real destination for children and adults alike because there are so many more activities,” said Marion Wiener, spokeswoman for the children’s museum.
